Matchbox Twenty (also known as Matchbox 20 and MB20) is
an American rock band formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995.
Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself
or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified 12× Platinum (diamond) in
the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top
three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× Platinum in the United States.
Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was
certified 2× Platinum in the United States.

"Yourself Or Someone Like You" quickly gained a tenacious foothold in the Billboard Hot 200, eventually peaking at number 5
and achieving multi-platinum status. No one, including themselves, ever imagined that their debut album would sell more than 10 million units in America alone. The promotional single, "Long Day," also proved a minor hit on America's modern rock radio formats. The
follow-up, "Push," was an even bigger radio hit, although Thomas was forced to hastily explain the rationale behind lyrics relating to emotional and physical abuse.
The band continued to tour heavily on the US club circuit, helping push the album to its exalted position on the
Hot 200. Thomas enjoyed even greater success as the featured vocalist on
Santana's US chart-topper "Smooth,"
surprise hit single of 1999. Undergoing a slight name change (from Matchbox 20 to matchbox twenty intentionally spelled in lower case), the band released their sophomore collection
Season" the following May. "Bent," a shining example of the band's inoffensive mature rock sound, climbed to the top
of the Hot 100 two months later. The band's third album
Than You Think You Are," was released to eagerly awaited fans.

The instinctive union among these five musicians immediately evident during the band's electrifying live shows is a reminder of what can be achieved when musicians never lose sight of the fact that the song is the most important thing. "I think we get up there and try as honestly as we can to convey the songs as energetically and heartfelt as we can," says Thomas. "These are our songs and we really feel good about 'em. I don't think we try and put any dramatics into it, but after a show when we're just talking to people, they'll tell us, 'You know you were so into it, that was so intense to watch.' To us, we were just playing the songs and losing ourselves in them. It's like if you come to a rehearsal, you're gonna see the same thing. It's not something that we can help really."
